Greetings from the state of Georgia, United States of America, where I live. Welcome to Music: Practice & Theory.

Then you should look for professional musicians who play the traditional Georgian 7-string guitar, show them your guitar, and ask for advice about restoring it.

Where do you live? What nation? Are you in a major city, or a remote rural area? You need to find a professional luthier who restores old guitars, take the guitar to them for an inspection, and obtain an estimate of the cost of restoration. Then you need to do further research and obtain other estimates from other luthiers.

Why don't you read the owners manual? Or go to the Behringer website and look for technical support information? Or contact Behringer's technical support staff via email and ask them a question?

Noise from fluorescent lighting is one possibility.

comment What's the name of the “dual voice” effect in hip hop music?
I should have said "it has nothing to do with hip-hop per se" or perhaps "it is not exclusive to hip-hop". My point is that as it has existed for about 90 years, it predates hip-hop by many decades.

comment What's the name of the “dual voice” effect in hip hop music?
The process is called overdubbing or double-tracking. It has nothing to do with hip-hop. It has been used in all forms of music recording going back to the 1920s, so it is almost 100 years old.

comment What is it called when singers very rapidly change pitch while singing the same syllable of text?
Thank you, @jjmusicnotes. I'm actually unfamiliar with the use of the term "coloratura" as you found in your textbook. I stand corrected.

comment How much higher will I realistically be able to sing with daily practice and dedication?
This is a legitimate question about singing technique. I ought to know; I have a college degree in operatic voice. Please keep this question open.

comment Can a song in one key contain major chords that are not in the key? Or does that change the key?
It's similar but it's not a duplicate.

comment Is playing blindfold a good practice method?
Try playing in front of a mirror and looking yourself in the eye the whole time. This will be practice for playing in front of an audience. You should make eye contact with the audience from time to time when you perform.

comment Can the fan fretted design on guitars acheive pythagorean intonation?
This question should remain open. We have taken questions on guitar intonation and historical temperaments and microtonal tuning before.

comment What's the concert pitch for Saint Petersburg Philharmonic?
Google the orchestra, find an email address for a staff member or musician in the orchestra, write to them, and ask them.

comment Does Singing Lower Notes Require More Breath?
And also, singing softly with a good tone requires more air and more breath support than singing loudly.

comment No sound output in LMMS
It would be helpful if you could edit your question to provide an explanation as to what LMMS is, along with a link. Also, I see that LMMS exists for Linux, Windows and Mac OS X. Which computer platform and OS version are you running, and what are your hardware and sound card specifications?

comment Did they ever make a double bass this huge?
It took at least two people to play a note on these instruments.

comment Nylon strings for alternative tunings on hollowbody electric
If there are no unwound nylon strings that go down to "d", then it's because the manufacturers have not found a satisfactory way to make one, and the "d" strings need to be wound.
